Sound Doctrine is Not Poisonous

There are sheep to be gathered in, there are souls to be saved, and there is a harvest to be reaped and there is nothing poisonous about it.

To claim what the bible claims today means that we hold toxic views. If you hold to complementarian teaching, you now hold toxic views. This means that Tim Keller and his theology is toxic; this is doctrine that is going to cause death and debilitation, according to some. What is happening in complementarian circles cannot be described as poisonous or causing death or debilitation. What we have seen in complementarian churches and organization is anything but death causing and poisonous; churches and organizations are growing. They are planting more churches and sending out more students. God loves to bless his truth; whatever God teaches is good and true and will accomplish his purpose. We don’t need to fear that doctrine will halt church growth. God does not place the future of his church in our hands. It is God and God alone who gives the growth. As the word goes out, there are some who are repelled by it; others respond to the voice of the shepherd and love that voice. There are sheep to be gathered in, there are souls to be saved, and there is a harvest to be reaped and there is nothing poisonous about it.
